Makeuptini

Here are some swatches of lipstick mixtinis I’ve recently mixed up. I haven’t tested out my new lipstick mold yet. I’m a little nervous about using it for some reason. I’ve been sticking with my lip balm tubes and the pouring tray.

Of course the purple was my favorite but it came out with a bizarre texture. It was gloppy and melty like it hadn’t solidified. The main color came from an Icing’s brand that was really greasy and smelled funky nasty. I had to add a flavor oil and mix in other more matte lipsticks and still got this weird gloppy concoction. I decided to melt it down and add more beeswax.

Unfortunately now it’s a thick clumpy mess so I’ll try melting it down again with some more lipstick base. I love the color so much I’ll keep reformulating it until I get the right Makeuptini cocktail!

The top three colors are also good. But the two lower colors I’ll melt down to get a darker shade. I detest sheer lipstick.

Once I get other my fear of testing out my TKB mold I’ll post some lipstick mixtinis in the cool lipstick tubes that came with the Go-For-Broke Lipstick Kit.

I was browsing through Sephora when I saw this awesome looking purple lipstick that reminded me of the 80’s.

It’s Rouge Artist Intense 15 by Make Up Forever. A vivid shimmery purple lipstick that screamed. “Buy me, love me, take me home!” Resistance was futile so I bought it immediately and took it home.

Once I tried it on I was a little disappointed. It’s not nearly as dark as it appeared in the store and on the back of my hand. It goes on very sheer and has a rough, lumpy texture. But I still liked the color.  You can see the photo below for its sheerness.

I tried it afterward lining my whole lips with Hot Topic’s Purple lip liner. I didn’t take a picture of that.  It still wasn’t exactly what I wanted so I added a purple lipstick mixtini I made to it and it finally popped and looked like the color I thought I had purchased. I’ll have to take a photo of me wearing the combination of the two colors.

Below is my Makeuptini mixtini – my lipstick melt mixture with added pigment to get the purple shade I wanted.

Which color is better?  MUFE or mine mixtini? I like to combine them but can wear my mixtini alone.
